Join Us! Adaptive Cycling Event
Join our friends from Confluence Health’s Rehab Department and Outdoors for All for an adaptive cycling event at Pybus Public Market on Saturday, July 17.
The event, sponsored by Wenatchee Valley Medical Group, will be free and open to cyclists with physical, cognitive, and/or sensory impairments over the age of five.
The purpose of the event is to provide community members with disabilities and their families an opportunity to try out a variety of adaptive bikes. These bikes are modified designs that suit the unique needs of individuals and include styles like tandems, handcycles, recumbents, and tricycles. The bikes will be supplied by Outdoors for All, a Seattle-based nonprofit working to enrich the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through outdoor recreation.
Although North Central Washington has vast access to the great outdoors and exercise for its able-bodied residents, there is a significant lack of options for people with physical, cognitive and/or sensory impairments. This gap in opportunities creates health disparities for those living with disabilities. The adaptive cycling event is a step towards increasing access to recreation for our community members and Confluence Health’s patients living with disabilities. Stop by Pybus and take a look at the bikes on July 17th and show your support for adaptive recreation in the Wenatchee Valley!
